COLORWAY
The Palantir was inspired by The Lord of the Rings. It is the "seeing stone" misused by Saruman and then Pippin, but it rightfully belonged to Aragorn. I had in mind the scene in The Two Towers when Pippin looked in it and saw Sauron. Then Gandalf took it and gave it to Aragorn saying, "Receive it, lord...in earnest of other things that shall be given back."

This was a colorway from my 2023 Lord of the Rings inspired Advent calendar that followed Aragorn's journey through all three books. I decided to take a few of the colorways I created for the Advent calendar and add them to my shop. 

The colors in The Palantir include gold, turquoise, chocolate, eggplant, black, and the deep dark magenta of The Winedark Sea.

I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein contains the same colors but in different places, making each one unique. If you plan to use more than one skein in a project, I recommend switching skeins every few rows to create a more consistent look.

YARN BASE
I dyed it on Sock Perfection, which is perfect for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of 80% extra-soft superwash merino and 20% nylon.
